User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040908 Firefox/0.10 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040908 Firefox/0.10 On the last panel of the Firefox installer (titled "Set Up Shortcuts"), the user has the option to create Firefox shortcut icons on the desktop, in the Start menu Programs folder, and in the Quick Launch bar. By default, all of these are turned on (even after I turned them off the -last- time I ran the installer, but that's a whole 'nother issue). If I turn them all off, and in particular if I turn off the option labeled "In my Start Menu Programs folder", an (empty) Firefox folder is created in the Start Menu Programs folder anyway. Granted, this folder is empty and thus no shortcut icons are created (as advertised), but it's still an annoyance to have this empty folder created when there's no reason for it. (And because I like to keep my system as uncluttered as possible, I end up having to manually delete this folder each time after running the installer.) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 0. Delete any Firefox folder currently residing in your Start menu Programs folder. 1. Run Firefox installer for Windows 2. Go through each of the installer panels 3. On the last panel, titled "Set Up Shortcuts", disable the option "In my Start Menu Programs folder". 4. Select the Next button. 5. Allow installer to run. 6. Check the Start menu Programs folder. You'll see that an empty Firefox folder has been created anyway. Actual Results: An empty Firefox folder has been created in the Start menu Programs folder. Expected Results: Not created -any- Firefox folder in the Start menu Programs folder. (If the folder is going to be empty, there's no reason to create it, particularly since I indicated that I did -not- want anything created in the Start menu Programs folder.)
